Email Eastern they'll tell you exactly. Pics of the BB would help.

Looks to be from around 2008-9 to me. It has welded gyro tabs but sealed everything else. It's most likely a complete one.

19.5 doesn't sound right, it's probably 20.5

If it is a 19.5" it's likely a low level/entry bike.

What's the serial number? And is it a Spanish or Mid BB? Can't tell for sure from the photos.

Oh and is that the stock paint or was it painted over?

Email Eastern with the numbers stamped into the frame on the bottom where the crank goes through (bottom of the bottom bracket) and they will tell you.

You sure that's a mid bb? I looked and looked, but Eastern used Spanish on all their old bikes and the welded on gyro tabs suggests it's an older model.


Closest thing to what you have that I could find is it might be a 2007 Eastern Element since that year didn't have a cutout in the seat tube, but it was a Spanish BB and I have no idea what the TT length is.

Try emailing Eastern with the serial number, give em a couple days cause they're probably busy getting their company started back up again

my bad its a spanish. i was being told by a few friends it looks like a growler because it has the seat clamp cut out and the top of the seat tube is cut at an angle and i remeasured the tt and it came out to 20.but it doesn't make sense because the growlers have removable tabs for the gyro and the brake tabs.The bearings are a little bit smaller then the round spoke wrench i was wrong the bearings i have are the spanish.

Growler has removable brake hardware so it's not that.


I still think it's an Element but can't be positive since I don't think their top tubes came that small.

How are you measuring the TT length? It goes from center of the head tube to center of the seat tube

I had a 2008 frame with the welded gyro tabs and it had a mid BB.
